BY KIMBERLY BRAUN, MA, CSP
For more than 10 years, my life was immersed in silence, chant and meditation. I was a tradi- tional, Catholic Carmelite nun. Shortly after taking solemn vows, I was asked to join a new community in another state. I said YES, and this is where a magnificent story begins.
During meditation one evening, I looked out into the
expanse of land behind me, my heart free of distractions and
interruptions. Silence. Solitude. Then, I sensed it: “Build our
permanent monastery.” It would be a place to give us space
and quiet so we could interact more harmoniously with the
community and with God. As it bubbled forth upon my lips,
I knew my prayer would be answered. I said YES.
